Get excited. It looks like early October for the official relaunch of BTTV. We’re excited, maybe you’re excited? New site preview here if you want it.

To celebrate we made a BTTV t-shirt over at Spreadshirt. If you’re game, pick one up! The logo is white but you can choose your own color shirt.

Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
